    Default Lexington BBQ Battle Results

    Well, as the defending GC there, I had hoped for a little better showing, but it is what it is.

    Chicken 13th - Chicken was the one thing I had been able to count on the last several comps, but not this one. I over cooked it a bit, but it was the taste scores that did me in. Seems you either loved it or hated it and 2 judges hated it.

    Ribs 9th - They were ok and the judges agreed, pretty consistent scores, but nothing special.

    Pork 1st - I thought it was the best pork I had done in a while and the judges thought so as well. 1st in pork by 9 points over second place.

    Brisket 19th - Worst comp brisket I had ever made and the scores reflected it. Just had a bad chunk of beef. As soon as I removed it from the smoker I knew I was screwed. Since I started cooking Wagyu, I only cook one at the comp and it cost me.

    Wound up 8th overall.

    Anyhow, nice to get the first solo comp of the year out of the way........on to the next one......with 2 briskets this time.

    1st place pork is something you should be very proud of.
    I'm sure you will do better next time on the other category's.

    Certainly down from "GC" status, but still not bad overall. Be proud of your Number 1 Pork! Good show!!

    First solo down with a head of steam - next one you'll take back that seat plus one. Sorry for the dip - looking forward to your next success though

    I have another Wagyu in the freezer that I am contemplating grinding up Okie style.

    In any case, I am bringing 2 briskets next time.
